inaugural balls can do, recognizing the work of the people that have worked to get the president elected. in the 1840s, when andrew jackson was the president, he opened up the white house, much to his chagrin, because it was trashed because of that, but he wanted popular people type of event, not a formal ball. >> you can watch the president inauguration at the white house, and monday, the public ceremony , but first his weekly radio address, where he talked about recent proposals for reducing gun violence he asked the american people to find out where their representatives stood. >> hi, everybody. i announced a series of concrete steps we should take to protect our children and community from gun violence, growing out of meetings held with more than 200 different groups, from parents and teachers, to law enforcement and sportsman, to religious leaders and mental health professionals. in the weeks ahead, i will do everything in my power to make them a reality. while we might not be able to protect every act of senseless violence, if there's anything we can do to reduce it it, if one life
as president. that's a hair above the 51% that put him back in office in the november election. 61% say he's easy-going and likable. 55% say he can handle a crisis. 51% say he's a good commander in chief. while only 29% say that he works effectively with congress. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." one of president obama's first major challenges in his second term will be trying to get significant new gun control legislation through the congress, but can he do it? if the outrageous opposition coming from the right is any indication, the president has a major fight on his hands. the nra has labeled him an elitist hypocrite and called out his daughters who receive secret service protection. yesterday senator ted cruz accused the president of exploiting the murder of children to push through gun control legislation, and then there are the real nuts out there. a movement of people who say that the sandy hook tragedy was a hoax. the real purpose was to create a political environment to take away all our guns. the american public is largely on board with at least some of the pr
. it was relatively easy it was unanimous that george washington had been elected president. the first thing they had to do was notify washington he needed to come to take his oath of office. it took a little while for presidents of the united states in those days to get to wherever the federal government was so they had a couple of weeks to work things out. well the first thing they did was to write an oath for everybody else to take including the vice president of the united states. congress write it is oath that every other person who works for the government from military to judges to the legislators. that is an oath written by congress and it's changed over the centuries. but the oath the president takes is unique. it's in the constitution and it's never changed. so the question was where are we going to swear in the president of the united states? well congress is meeting in federal hall on wall street. and it was a nice building. the house had the bigger room downstairs and the senate had the smaller room upstairs. and they said the president should be sworn in in our chamber. that was fine ex
bush, the elder took over. she was there in 1985, president reagan's re-election. she was there in 1981, the first reagan inaugural. that's andrea mitchell. if i end up doing these for as long as andrea mitchell has done these, i will be covering every inauguration from now until 2041, by which time i will be coming to you, presumably, as a ho hologram. so help me god. second inaugural, as opposed to a first inaugural when one president is leaving and another is starting, and we're covering a second inauguration, like we will be this year there's something different. governing is already under way. the president has started some things that he intends to finish in his second term. sort of a sense of continuity, well informed expectation about what kind of president this is going to be and where he is likely to go. when president obama was inaugurated. first time, there was none of that certainty and expectation, right? the country and all of us were caught up in the historical enormity of the fact that the united states of america was about to swear in our first african-american preside
that will eventually go before the united states supreme court. that's why this election was so important. if there are any vacancy on the supreme court board it is important to appoint pro-choice justices, and we have to keep fighting. especially in these states that are dominated by these ultra conservative right wing legislatures and governors where they're passing these horrific laws in an tempt to close down access. right now in the state of mississippi there is one clinic in the entire state serving one is one of the poorest populations with the highest maternal mortality rates in this country. that governor and that legislature is determined to close that only clinic. we've got to be vigilant. we've got to fight. we have public opinion on our side by the way. even in a state like mississippi. we beat the person hood initiative 58-42. we beat the public. what we don't have are the governors and state legislatures and governors. we have to keep fighting. >> kathy spillar. thank you for coming on. i really appreciate it. coming up we have oprah winfrey interfere with lance armstrong.
the election against the incumbent, and at issue was the iran contra crisis, where americans were held for over 400 days after a group of islamic militants and students took over the embassy. as he was giving his inauguration address, the militants were being released. this is about 25 minutes. [applause] >> governor, are you prepared to take the constitutional oath? >> i am. >> raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear, that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states and will come to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the united states. so help you god. >> so help me, god. [applause] ♪ ["hail to the chief" plays] >> >> the president of the united states. [applause] >> thank you. thank you. senator hatfield, mr. justice, mr. president, vice president bush, vice president mondale, senator baker, speaker o'neill, reverend moomaw, and my fellow citizens, to a few of us here today this is a solemn and most momentous occasion, and yet in the history of our nation it is a commonplace occurrence. t
. much of the polarization is not eternal, it is external because of the people who get elected -- internal, it is external because of the people who get elected. >> when our nation separated from church and state. what are your thoughts and using the bible, and the words "so help me god" used? >> not only did george bible, but have a after his inauguration, the congress voted to have a church service. it went across to sit paul's chapel in new york board -- they went across to st. paul's chapel in new york, and had a service. there was no first amendment by the at that time. -- at that time. what has happened now is that congress does not vote in these things. presidents choose what to do. since roosevelt's time, presidents have usually gone to a church service on the morning of the inauguration or just before the inauguration. that is personal to them. they choose whatever bible to hold. just like members of congress can choose a family bible or historical bible. when the first muslim was sworn in, he was provided with thomas jefferson's copy of the koran to be sworn in. peopl
changes be made? >> i actually don't think so. when you look at the democrats up for re-election in the senate, many are from southern states, pro-gun states. there's very little common ground when you're dealing with the right in the constitution. >> this is the problem here when you put politics in it, you have too many people worried about getting re-elected as opposed to worrying about the 10,000-plus folks killed every year when it comes to gun violence. they should put lives ahead of their jobs. >> let me share another quote. "time" magazine/orc poll shows that 56% support a ban on semiautomatic weapons. that is down from 62% in december. if a poll was taken right now, what do you think -- what do you think that would be? >> oh, you know, i would be very interested to see it because of how you shape it. it's fascinating. we did a thing from our radio show, talking to people and showing pictures. they said, yeah, ban that gun. it was a shotgun, it just had a pistol grip. people didn't understand. the problem with the assault weapons ban has always been it's a spooky looking
,000 and a couple of days' vacation, but he's going again. >> i knew on the night that he was re-elected as president of the united states, that i wanted to return to washington to be part of this celebration. >> the president-elect of the united states, barack h. obama. >> reporter: the last inauguration saw 1.8 million americans braving the freezing temperatures and crushing crowds to witness this moment. this year, the crowds are not expected to be as big -- >> nice to see you again, welcome back. >> reporter: but still enough to fill hotels like the historic willard, where steve blum says he's met seven presidents. >> i got a fist bump from obama. >> reporter: and everyone has learned that the festivities are not really about any one person. >> what we celebrate is that we are the greatest democracy on this planet and that we could have this transition of power, whether it be second term or whatever it be, like no other country can. >> you might not like the president, you might not like his politics, but he's the president. he's the only one we have. >> reporter: theodore roosevelt
